After another electric VIP party featuring Henry Rollins filled with good vibes and great networking, the International Cannabis Business Conference’s program in Vancouver begins this morning (Monday, June 25th), with a keynote address by Mr. Rollins followed by presentations from top experts across the industry. After a day of learning the latest about the Canadian cannabis industry, with some international knowledge sprinkled in, conference attendees will unwind with the musical stylings of hip-hop legend Del the Funky Homosapien.
A unique and exciting addition to the usual informative conference schedule, this year’s ICBC features a million-dollar pitch project from Canopy Rivers in collaboration with Canopy Growth. The “Micro-Cannabis, Macro Impact” event is bringing future Canadian licensees to present before a group of judges to earn capital from Canopy Rivers to help jump-start their business venture. Good luck to everyone participating!
Unless you have been living under a rock, you know that Canada just passed the first truly full legalization law (including home cultivation and sales to adult tourists!), so it is the perfect time for anyone in the industry, or thinking of joining the industry, to learn from, and network with, top Canadian industry participants. The ICBC includes a who’s who of Canadian advocates and entrepreneurs including Groundworks’ Jamie Shaw, Hilary Black of Canopy Growth, MMJ Canada’s Clint Younge, Stephen Verbeek of Hello Cannabis, attorneys Kirk Tousaw and Robert Laurie, and more!
With branding, marketing, and strategic partnerships so important in this competitive business, industry participants will be able to learn from PRØHBTD Media’s Drake Sutton-Shearer and Civilized’s Derek Riedle, among others. PRØHBTD is even holding a branding seminar exclusively for the first 50 attendees that sign up.
With Netflix’s Cooking on High star Ngaio Bealum as MC, and Del the Funky Homosapien performing at the ICBC afterparty, the Vancouver ICBC will be entertaining as well as engaging and informative. There are just a few tickets left before the event sells out, so if you can make it to the Sheraton Wall Centre in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia, get yourself a ticket and be a part of this historic event, the first cannabis conference held in a nation that’s passed a full legalization law.
